White iPhone 4 release & ship date near Christmas
The claim below regarding ship date was proven to be false information, but is maintained for posterity:
Just as the black iPhone 4 is becoming more steadily available, a supposed email exchange between Steve Jobs and a high schooler has provided a rough release date for the long awaited White iPhone 4 model. According to the unconfirmed exchange, the white iPhone 4 will ship near Christmas of this year.
Here’s the email thread:
Hello Steve, My name is Nathan, I’m a high school student from San Bernardino. I also happen to be one of your biggest fan and a total Apple fanboy and proud to be.
I’ve been saving up money to buy the new iphone 4. I want the white one but Apple said it won’t be available until later this year. I know you must be asked this question hundreds of times a day but do you think we can expect to get the white iphone for xmas?
I hope you can answer. Thank you Steve.
To which Steve Jobs replies:
Christmas is later this year.
The biggest issue with the supposed email exchanges between Steve Jobs and, well, everyone, is that they are practically impossible to verify. This latest exchange was reported by the iPhone-centric iDB who points out that it’s always a possibility it’s a fake exchange.
Releasing the White iPhone 4 near Christmas would certainly provide for a white christmas for the Apple fans that have been holding out until the white model is available.
Update: Well as we mentioned, it’s always a possibility that these emails are fake, and iPhoneDownloadBlog.com came forward today stating that the email exchange was in fact a fake.
